2008 Island Packet 440

location icon Southampton, United Kingdom
Year 2008
Length 46 ft
Builder/Manufacturer Island Packet

Lovely condition throughout - this IP440 (new model equivalent is the IP439) combines serious Island Packet build quality with great comfort, easy short handed sailing and great sea keeping - the hallmark of every Island Packet Yacht along with classic traditional good looks.  Cutter rig with self tacking stay-sail.  This long keel world cruiser is built for long distance blue water cruising with a very safe and stable outlook as priority number one.  Electric winches, generator and bow thruster.

Two very conscientious and proud previous owners.  Current owner is looking to a gradual change of leisure life style, so prepared to consider a part exchange for a trailer sailer, motor boat or motor home.

Berthed on the Beaulieu River at Bucklers Hard.  Nicely set up for European and long distance cruising.  Mainly UK sailed with occasional Med holiday cruising and a couple of annual Round GB trips.

Ashore through the winter until April for the usual pre-season work, now back afloat for the season.  Re-antifouled with new anodes just fitted.  New anchor windlass motor and gearbox recently fitted.

Brokers Comments

Beautiful boat and definitely worth viewing if you are looking for really sensible cruising yacht or a blue water ocean going yacht that will keep you safe and sound wherever in the world you want to go.  Long keel and nicely balanced rig combines to provide superior sea keeping and great sailing qualities.  She just plugs along steadily wherever she's pointed, no matter what the weather.

Built for American's, so lots of space below decks with separate shower stalls and heads.

Standing rigging recently overhauled and running rigging continuously replaced as necessary.

Just the job, for living that dream, staying healthy and safely getting away from all the hassle of life and global restrictions.

The interior layout of the 440 makes it perfect for the couple that wants comfortable cruising with excellent family or guest accommodation.  Would also work really well as holiday retreat or live aboard.
